Charlie Crist: I support gay marriage
The Tampa Bay Times ^ | May 8, 2013 | Adam C. Smith

Posted on 05/09/2013 11:07:20 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Potential/likely Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist is taking some heat for having backed a Florida gay marriage ban during his 2006 Republican primary for governor. Tonight he posted the following on Facebook:

Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.

Seems to us he still has some explaining to do about his position. Was it an evolution or an acknowledgement that he felt the need to discard his true feelings in '06 to avoid antagonizing social conservatives? Crist back then called himself a "live and let live" Republican and at one point suggested he backed civil unions.....

Does he support two men in prison on death row getting married and sharing a cell?

Yeah, we know, Charlie. This is.. what.. the 39th time you’ve made that announcement. Is there something else you’d like to announce as well?

and I want to know about someone’s sex why?

Crist , look you surprise no one, you and your ilk can shout as much as you want about this sham marriage but it doesn’t make it right or change my mind or my family.

he supports marriage equality, then so do I, OK when can some have more than one wife, when can others have their kind of marriage Crist, yes you dope fairy boy, equality means anything to all.

You mean lindsy grahm? Not only does cc support gay’s, he supports king hussein too. But that’s redundant.

From wiki:

Crist became engaged to Carole Rome on July 3, 2008 after 9 months of dating, and was married on December 12 of that year.

But don't let the being married thing fool ya, just like slick willie and cankles it's just a business arrangement for political purposes.

Ten bucks says that Charlie’s been “married” numerous times...always in men’s rooms stalls and always for a few minutes at a time.

wow, this is about as surprising as when that guy Jim Parsons on the sitcom “big bang theory” came out of the closet a year or so ago. It didn’t even make a blip on the radar screen. Most people would have been more surprised if he WASN’T gay. lol

I’m surprised that his sham marriage has lasted this long.

She must travel a lot.

Yes, Charlie is gay and married. He is living proof that gays always could get married the old fashioned way — man to woman.

There are 2 types of people who support gay marriage:

1) People who are gay
2) People who have gay family member (usually brother/sister or son/daughter)

1st marriage was in 1979, they divorced less than a year later, probably about the same time she found out he was a pole smoking, butthole surfing, rump ranger, turd burgler.

I think I got em all.......

I have a Great Niece and a Nephew both gay and neither speaks to me because I tell it like it is.

Both were molested by their father as children, My niece left the SOB as soon as she found out , but the damage was done.

They are both mental cases IMO . IMO all Homosexuals are mental cases.

Well there’s a shock! Good pick for a US Senate, John Cornyn! This is why I will not vote for Gabriel Gomez here in MA, because he is a democrat. I will write somebody in or stay home. I’m done with these worthless men who claim to be republicans.

We are so screwed in Florida.....

We have an ex Gov who now supports gay marriage

We have a current governor trying to lynch a man who defended himself...because a Pigford lawyer wants the lynching

We have a current Senator who has ties to George Soros....and wants to give illegals and terrorists amnesty

We let the GOP gerrymander Allen West

And spawned pube head Debbie Wadsserman Schultz
